    Using Clean And Jerks for warm ups

    So instead of doing three warm up sets before each exercise would it be alright if I just did some clean and jerks because of their full body recruitment? I'm just trying to cut time down as my current routine takes around an hour and a half.

    C&J isn't going to specifically warmup your target muscle group, but if it works go for it.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    I could definitely see it cutting out two warmup sets per excercise. For instance, you'd do your regular stretches and warmup, then do the C&J, and then only need one warmup set per movement. For any of the major lifts, I couldn't imagine cutting out the warmup set altogether, but I could definitely see the C&J making it unnecessary for isolation lifts (if you even do them, I don't) or any non-major lifts.

    This is all assuming you can jump right into the C&J without a good warmup first, which I can't. I'd need additional warmups to do the C&J, so it would defeat the purpose for me unless I'm doing a lot of movements and will require more than a set or two of warmup sets.

    This is actually a pretty decent idea.

    I do this. Clean and push press, more like. Start with a bar, then 135 x 5 then into my working sets. Usually do deads after so no need for endless warmup sets in that regard.

    I warm up SPECIFICALLY to do clean and jerks (and I devote a day to working on them), so as a movement itself, I don't find it a valid method to use as a warm up. I find rowing (if you have an erg) to be a great warm up. C&J is more of a lower-body oriented movement. Yes, you have to have a strong upper body for higher lifts, but not too long ago I could do 225 w/split jerk and my upper body still has work to do. A good jerk has no press out at all.

    doesn't really sound like a good idea.

    what excercises are you thinking that would be a good warmup for?

    What is your routine, because I'm sure theres some crap you could cut out to save time.
